Here's some interview footage I decided to upload. I interviewed Sean Paul's manager whilst in Jamaica, then Sean Paul over here in the UK last year. This is the first of about 3 parts regarding Sean Paul. I think it's interesting regarding image and knowing your market despite what you may want to do as an artist. It was interesting hearing both perspectives - artist himself wanting to and the manager advising otherwise.
Dancehall superstar Sean Paul speaks on his desire to do songs with more substance, but both the fans and industry demanding party vibe and girls songs. He shares rough experience growing up with father going to jail.
In the middle, his manager, Jeremy Harding, explains why he has been steered down that vibe, before Sean ends on the inspiration for freshly leaked song "Hold On".

New album, Tomahawk Technique, out in the coming weeks (check Google).
There will be a lot more from the manager. The interview is ridiculously long, but extremely interesting.
